Reviews

  • "Over his brilliant, wandering career, Anderson has shown us plenty of scuzz and grime, alongside flashes of kinetic verve and primordial howl. But LICORICE PIZZA is, by some measure, his most deliberately pleasant film to date."
    - Vanity Fair
  • "LICORICE PIZZA delivers a piping-hot, jumbo slice-of-life look at how it felt to grow up on the fringes of the film industry circa 1973, as seen through the eyes of an ambitious former child actor plotting how to follow up his early screen career."
    - Variety
  • "[Paul Thomas Anderson] has sifted through a haze of wildly embellished tales and half-forgotten memories -- and pieced together something that feels more concrete, more achingly, tangibly real, than just about any American movie this year."
    - Los Angeles Times
  • "A lived-in, even tangible, period experience -- you can practically smell the maraschino cherries in the cocktails and feel the shag carpeting beneath your feet."
    - TheWrap
